“Kristy Curry, in all of my years coaching, was the hardest and most energetic assistant I ever had, along with Kim Mulkey. She was a jewel for me, and I credit a lot of our success to her. She is going to be great for Alabama”
-Leon Barmore, Louisiana Tech Head Coach (1982-2002)

She will create relationships with her players and the community that will result in opportunities for anyone associated to win in all areas of the college experience. There will be a game plan that involves recruiting the best people for her system, a disciplined work ethic and approach to every day details and a mentally tough, hard-charging style that will be fun for players and fans. A great hire by Alabama to become competitive and respected in the SEC!”
